|Perspective oil and gas prospecting in Russia in the context of global trends in exploration|
|The progressive depletion of the resource base of oil and gas production in Russia in conjunction with the unfavorable economic conditions makes it necessary to identify new competitive areas of exploration for oil and gas. Great value is represented by analysis of the experience in exploration in the world. This experience shows that the main conventional discoveries of the last decade have been made mainly in complex geological conditions. These include: pre-salt carbonates, large delta and fold belts. Major discoveries within them became possible due to the use of new technologies and geological concepts. They have enabled us to identified new areas of work that have been poorly studied and technically inaccessible in the past. In modern Russian conditions the prospecting these of oil and gas zones located on land with the use of modern tools can provide effective renewing of the resource base of oil and gas production.
Keywords: pre-salt carbonates, delta, fold belts, oil and gas exploration, data re-interpretation.

|Structure of fold belts and prospects of discovery of large deposits in folded Pre-Urals|
|Study of the structure and oil and gas potential of fold belts of the world has shown that large oil and gas fields can be discovered within them after many decades of their prospecting due to the complexity of the structure. Using the experience of fold belts studying and new geophysical and drilling technologies can provide new large discoveries in folded Pre-Urals. This is supported by large prospective areas, proved productivity of their petroleum systems, and diversity of perspective objects. This area is characterized by developed oil and gas infrastructure, which will reduce exploration costs and reduce their duration.
Keywords: large fields, oil and gas prospecting, new areas of work, Ural fold belt.
